  1. Alert me before pulling all my sites offline!!

    This morning I woke up to find everything offline. In the portal I just saw that the sites were stopped. Clicked "Start" but nothing happened. It took a while before i finally found somewhere where the cause was apparent. My account was disabled. No warning, nothing, just disabled and everything yanked offline!

    By digging my way into the old manage site, I could get on to the account site. Pages loaded extremely slowly, causing extra stress waiting 30-45 secs for each action. when I managed to resolve the spending limit issue everything returned to normal.

    The final irony is the…

      • CloudQueue.DeleteMessageAsync: Return bool for deleted or not

        CloudQueue.DeleteMessageAsync: Return bool for deleted or not

        Today the signature is public Task DeleteMessageAsync
        a public Task<bool> DeleteMessageAsync
        where the return is true for deletedOk, false for not deleted, like for instance List<T>.Remove would be good.

        • Add ability to virus scan a stream

          Azure must offer the ability to virus scan a stream. Not a file. Due to corporate security requirements, files cannot be saved without being encrypted.

          • Add the ability to write a tag in the Azure Subscription to avoid confusions

            Sometimes the Azure administrators have to work with a lot of subscriptions.
            The problem here is to work with the Subscription Id.
            When you use a very few amount of subscriptions is not a problem, but it could be a problem when you are using a lot of subscriptions.
            Is very easy to be working with the wrong Azure subscription when you manage a lot of Azure Subscriptions.
            The subscription id could be confusing sometimes in some situations.
            To avoid this, my suggestion is to have an additional tag in the Subscription (this tag should not be mandatory, only for…

              • when a server shuts down unintentionally due to a host outage, please notify all customers affected.

                Currently MS Azure notifies customers during scheduled outages, however, in the event of an emergency outage, where a customer's server is rebooted, (due to a host hardware failure, or whatever), all customers affected should be notified as a courtesy. We had an outage and had our services not started currently due to a password issues, we would have known that the server went down.

                • Improve notification of PaaS Updates

                  I would like to know if Microsoft has plans to improve the system of PaaS updates. Currently it allows 5 minutes prior to a forced shutdown and this happens once or twice a month. Our issue is that some of our customer transactions take longer than 5 minutes so those will have a chance to result in end user timeouts and an error for our clients. This leads to bad customer experience. So we would like Microsoft to work on a way to provide a solution to this.

                  • Two-person rule for certain "nuclear" administrative tasks.

                    Some administrative options are so powerful that they could essentially destroy a cloud-based organisation. To be honest I am so absent minded myself so I would actually like to prevent myself from deleting some resources unless someone else agree that it's a good idea.

                    It's a good idea for nuclear weapons and I think it has a place in cloud administration, that two persons need to agree on certain actions.

                        • Make it free for developers

                          Hi,

                          Can you please make Azure totally free for developers or at least provide a tier that's 100% free for all the services you provide so that developers can actually learn to use your technology without being hit with a bill every month. Even if the services were slow, restricted by the number of transactions, etc... to ensure it wouldn't be abuse but to keep charging developers is totally wrong. If you at least provide an option to fully disable a service without having to be deleted and charged for it, this would even make more sense. Take this for…

                                  Bring the prices down to 50% as premium tier doesn't feel any different to standard. Azure pricing is way out of line with AWS and Google Cloud offering.

                                  • Last 4 digits of credit card on invoice

                                    If Azure invoices are being paid automatically from a credit card, the last 4 digits of that card should appear on each invoice. I manage an Azure account for my company; service charges are billed to my personal card, and I submit a monthly expense report. Company rules require that all expenses charged to a credit card must have the receipt with a credit card number. Because there is no credit card number on the Azure statements, I have to print out my credit card statement to prove that I used my card to pay for the monthly Azure charge.

                                    • How to transfer android phone sms to computer?

                                      • Misleading pricing in azure calculator total price (currency icon bug)

                                        Hi there,

                                        Today i was exploring azure and hit the calculator page for just finding how much this gonna cost me if i buy but when i tried that, i was shocked with pricing, actually price is all fine calculated by software script but all the prices were showing in US Dollars, so if you change currency from dropdown, your price will reflected by the exchange rate or whatever you use to calculate but instead of showing appropriate currency it's only showing price with "US Dollar icon" which should not be that way, i'm counting this as a developer mistake…
